We stayed here for three nights in August and despite the inclement weather it really was a lovely stay to stay at.
The site is actually part of the old second world war Edgehill Airfield with the large hardstand area actually being where they used to park the planes. In fact if you look carefully you can find what remains of the old tie-down points.
As usual I've made a video of the site that can describe it much better than I can.
This is undoubtedly one of our favourite CLs down to its stunning views and sheer space. It’s basic and the water tape’s trickle would make filling up a chore if you weren’t otherwise distracted by the girls, a flock of nearby geese, or the infinity view over towards Stratford upon Avon. It’s pot luck on which view you get but there is so much space you will never get anything worse than a good view, and if you are in luck, the best spots are idyllic. The owner is friendly and helpful but does not intrude. An added bonus is when she sells local honey, literally made on site, and apples. For entertainment, there are regular displays of local buzzards, kestrels and kites, deer frolicking or gliders landing on the nearby airfield.
We stayed at Lodge Farm for 4 nights from 24th March , And we enjoyed every second of it
we were there when the clocks went forward and had two glorious spring days .
The views were amazing , and we loved the quiet . Our dog loved being able to go round the large field for a walk. It is also a great place to watch the birds.
And for a £5.00 per night could not have asked for more.
Would stay again and would recommend it.
The best CL's are the ones that don't try to be club sites in miniature. Ive stayed on the sites that are the regional runners up in the "CL of the decade" competition and they are lovely. Lawns cut with nail scissors, beautifully crafted pitch numbers to which you must reverse, borders with (and please help yourself) herbs. The REAL beauty of the CL is the anarchy of parking the caravan at a wonky angle to get the best view... the complete absence of electricity... the charm of the herd-working eccentrics that allow you to park your tin shed in their meadow. I can't quite put my finger on why I liked Lodge Farm so much. It could have been Di who is absolutely charming. It could be because the fiver-a-night tariff appeals to my Yorkshire roots. Or it could be the view westwards to Stratford Upon Avon 15 miles away. Alas it was never clear enough (I was there for Christmas) to watch the sun set... that must be spectacular. The site is on a disused airfield and (although I prefer to park on grass) I chose to stop on the disused helipad this time as the forecast was so poor. Just as well as it rained for 3 days out of 4 and on the 4th day the sky dropped 70mm of snow. Even then the walk to the tap and the disposal was pretty firm under foot. The phone signal on O2 is very good...not quite so good for the 3 network. I didn't bother with a TV. DAB reception was fine. The horses that grazed on the site were quite chatty and the fieldfares were busy in the field during the hours of daylight. All of the surrounding roads seemed to be incredibly wide... as is the gate into the CL. Any issues? Well... the water pressure is a bit low.
